How Dynepic’s DX Platform of Platforms Provides System and Data Synthesis to Solve Key Training Challenges in the US Military
Wednesday, October 13, 2021. 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM PDT
Extended Reality (XR) technologies are primed to revolutionize training; however, there is a critical lack of secure infrastructures that support the discovery, distribution, and display of innovative XR training content. Moreover, very few learning management systems (LMSs) support the display, distribution, and performance tracking of XR technologies which is a critical barrier to XR technology adoption within the US Military. This presentation will discuss some of the challenges that currently exist with the adoption and implementation of XR technologies, specifically within the US Military. To overcome these challenges, Dynepic has developed the DX Platform. The DX Platform is a “Platform of Platforms” that provides system and data synthesis to solve the critical challenges experienced by US Military training. The presentation will focus on the DX Platform’s displays for third-party integration, a central hub for discovery and distribution of XR content, and LMS Dashboards for displaying key performance information across a variety of user management types. Finally, this presentation will present results from the Air Force’s Maintenance Training Next program that used the DX Platform to discover XR content, create XR training, and deliver innovative training courses – all within XR-optimized displays.
Launched in 2014, Dynepic, Inc. is a woman- and service-disabled veteran founded tech company based out of Reno, Nevada. Dynepic’s DX Platform is secure, device- and software- agnostic infrastructure with open API’s, LMS/LRS, and a central training hub to build an open ecosystem for XR to power the future of multi-dimensional knowledge for a better tomorrow. www.dynepic.com
